Hard work, communication, and honesty are the keys to success in any field – especially law. I learned about hard work while putting myself through college and law school while working in my father’s business – a “mom and pop” corner grocery store in Hamburg, NY. At this job, I met and spoke with thousands of people from all walks of life. I realized that while every person is different, all should be treated with courtesy, dignity, and respect.
Upon completing law school, I joined a firm with experience in civil litigation which handled cases for the insurance companies. I eventually became a partner. For over 15 years, I represented insurers and defendants in personal injury lawsuits and trials. I learned how the insurance companies handled cases and the strategy they used. It became clear to me that the average person did not stand a chance in such a conflict.
Currently, I am a managing attorney for Cellino Law and handle my own cases and also work with the other attorneys to make sure that the firm provides outstanding service and care for our clients.
